"I would have thought it is plainly obvious that this mystery 3rd party that Ixion "Acquired" the tooling and rights to produce the 30T from is the factory that model was to be made in"Why can't it be the factory? Shrike has run out of money and the factory hasn't been paid. Add in that Ixion stated that they will be out $65,000. That roughly about the money collected from Shrike deposits and falls well short of the actual cost of tooling.
It's plainly obvious... It is NOT the factory...
And as I said before, maybe everyone would be better off if the truth was told by (all) those involved.
If Ixion had purchased the tooling. They are out $100K+ with no pre orders. The other give away is that the 30T is dependent on the sales of the 32. Ixion would not have forked out for the 30T tooling and risk not producing it if the 32 flopped. That would be a stone dead loss.
